On our site, there is no RESERVE ONLY option.
All trip reservations made on our site, www.ticketsbolivia.com, are understood to be immediate, confirmed purchases of bus tickets.
When you make such a purchase, you agree to the passenger names, dates and everything related to the trip.
If everything is correct, and you are paying with a credit card, the price of the ticket will be charged to your card and we will send you an email confirming your purchase.
Do not go to the terminal until you receive this second confirmation email from TicketsBolivia. This second email will be sent to you once we have verified that the reservation has been made correctly in the systems, and that your card has accepted the total charge.
TicketsBolivia will not accept liability if you do not receive the confirmation email due to problems with your email account or server. Remember to check your email 24-48 hours after making the reservation.
Please note that a travel agent will review your reservation and verify that we have all the necessary information before issuing your ticket. If we are unable to reach you, or do not receive the requested documents by fax or email, your reservation could be cancelled.
If your financial institution does not authorize a payment charged to your card, we will notify you of the problem by email in order to determine whether the information you gave us was accurate, or to allow you to use another card. If we do not receive a response, your reservation will be cancelled automatically.
Availability of reservations: Please note that some bus companies do not update their actual availability in their websites (if is the case). Although every effort is made to maintain actual availability, bus companies may occasionally reject a reservation. Because such errors are beyond our control, TicketsBolivia is not liable in these cases. In such a case, we would contact you by email.
The number of seats available on each trip is generally determined solely by the bus company.
Agreements between bus companies: Sometimes the reservation system will automatically allow for seats to be requested, involving bus companies that have no agreements among themselves. In such cases, it may be impossible to issue bus tickets.
TicketsBolivia looks for the best seats position on all the bus companies, nevertheless due to high season this will be so as to find the available seats.
The reservation systems to which travel agencies and bus companies are connected are designed to search for available seats. However, on routes involving several bus companies, they cannot verify for themselves whether there are agreements between such bus companies.
In such cases, TicketsBolivia will notify the customer by email.
TicketsBolivia is not liable for duplicate reservations made by the customer on our site. In any case, we will offer all possible alternatives permitted by the fare conditions.
Our website will not prevent users from making impossible reservations, such as trips to different places at the same time or a trip to one destination and a hotel at another destination at the same time. If the user makes this kind of impossible reservations, TicketsBolivia will not accept any liability and will not reimburse the user for the amount of the bookings.
An electronic ticket, or e-ticket, is registered directly and securely in the bus’ reservation system, and does not generate paper documents or tickets. It can be identified at all times using the reservation localizer that TicketsBolivia possess.
In some cases, un-notified service stops can be displayed, which can occasionally involve a bus change or waiting time at a terminal or small village. If the bus enters this information in the reservation system, the agency will make it available to customers. Otherwise, it is impossible for the agency to notify customers.
TicketsBolivia is not liable for un-notified stops.
As a travel agency, TicketsBolivia acts as an intermediary between its customers and the bus companies. The bus companies dictate the different regulations that affect travel.
If you need to make a change or cancellation, it is your responsibility to notify TicketsBolivia to find out whether it can be done, the possible penalties and the steps that must be taken.

TicketsBolivia will inform you of the cost for such changes, if they are possible. Changes in itineraries must be verified and a confirmed, depending to the availability of the bus or train company. We must point out that with unrestricted fares, the failure to cancel will result in "no show" status, and therefore the complete loss of your right to a refund.
For urgent matters during weekends, including changes and cancellations, please send us an email to notify TicketsBolivia of any changes you wish to make to your reservation.
Reservations are definitive, and TicketsBolivia will issue the tickets booked with the exact information entered by the customer.

The passenger will not be entitled to any refunds if refused boarding due to:
For all direct or indirect refunds requested by the passenger, and permitted by the applied fare, a handling fee will be charged in addition to any fees established by the bus company.
